'See your own Imagination at work in plenty!'



'It is the art to be in touch with the unknown, the unnameable, the mystery of our existence.'



Nicolaas Jan van der Valk was born in The Netherlands close to the Amsterdam Forest.

He had to recover from the violence at home for years and frequented a.o. the Stedelijk Museum in A'dam. 'The freedom of Karel Appel was fantastic and Im flugelschlag der schwane of Asger Jorn felt very close'. It turned out to be crucial years for his development.

 Last education: Pedagogic Academy, Amsterdam. Not finished.


Nicest exhibitions: Gallery Cricri and Israel Gallery Linka, both in A'dam.

Once, at an exhibition, a woman came to him and said: 'You look around like a bird of prey'. And he responded: 'May I introduce myself, the name is van der Valk. Can I eat you?

 Lives in The Netherlands and loves music very much.

This site is in honor of his mother Anna Clazina, his brother Rien and all the girls who came bye.



Niek van der Valk lived long in the vicinity of the River Amstel where Rembrandt van Rijn lived. It is good that he never knew Niek might be a descendant of him, otherwise he would have gone on holiday immediately.
